Roy Williams' Favorite Memory? Beating the Cowboys



    Once upon a time, when George W. Bush was the President of the United States, when Roy Williams and Jon Kitna played for the Detroit Lions, the Lions defeated the Dallas Cowboys. It was one of three victories for the team in 2006, and, as such, was kind of a happy moment for the players, Kitna and Williams in particular.

    And why not?

    Williams led the team in receiving with six catches for 104 yards and two touchdowns; Kitna went 28 for 42 passing for 306 yards and four touchdowns. It was the team’s third and final win of the year, and in week 17, represented the end of that miserable season for those Lions.

    For Williams, at least, the victory remains a memory in which to revel.

    Oh, that was No. 1, that was No. 1,” Williams said of the win, per ESPN Dallas. “Toasted Aaron Glenn on the corner route. I should have had 200 yards. I beat Terence Newman on a go route, [Jon] Kitna put it out there a little bit too far. Maybe I should dove for it, but I wanted to just catch it and keep running. Hit Terence Newman on the sideline with a forearm, made him fall down; that felt good.

    “It was the most memorable game for me, especially being here at home, putting the horns up down here where people understand what that means. When you do it up north, they don't. But it was probably my best memorable game that I can remember.”
